Your public high school in this area will be Steinert(East) or Hamilton West depending upon your address. The school more desired by home buyers in Steinert. If you are considering private school you might want to try Peddie in Allentown. It is less than 15 minutes away and one of the top private schools in the state. ... more

Please visit www.GreatSchools.net for details regarding ratings & statistics regarding different aspects ( student-teacher ratio, curriculum etc)

Construction of new homes in Robbinsville over the last few years warranted a new school to avoid overcrowding.
Thus the township budget reflected the requirement for this cost......however, Robbinsville properties were recently ressessed for taxes as well.

If your purchase decision is based on school ratings , please visit the suggested website.

Robbinsville also offers proximity to Hamilton train station.
Proximity to public transportaion, combined with a good school system is usually the reason for properties holding value during downturns.

Please email if you have further questions.

Hi Winnie.
That would seem like the easiest solution. However, I purchased my home in a great part of Hamilton last summer and will loose money if I were to sell now. Also, the homes are the market now are homes of people that have to move versus people that are looking to upgrade. A lot are "short sales". Therefore pickings are limited and I'm really picky. I looked for over 2 years before buying this house. Taxes on a similar house in WW would be at least $5,000 more. Using St Greg's tuition of $3,000 per year at 9 years (k-8) I would pay 27,000 in tuition or $45,000 more for taxes in WW. Notre Dame is $9,600 per year = $38,400 versus $20,000 in WW. So 13 years of Catholic school = $65,400 versus WW taxes of $65,000 for the same 13 years of school. Add into the cost of movers, realtors, painting, rugs, etc... it's doesn't pay to move. Plus I'm not that crazy about WW as a community. As you can see, I've thought a lot about this.

To answer my own original question - I contacted the Treton Diocese and was told that when I actually go to each school, the school will sit down with me a review test scores and other important information.
